Abstract This study presents an assessment of the equivalence of measurements of particulate matter PM10 concentrations using a low-cost electronic device as compared to the reference method. Data for the study were collected in accordance with the guidelines for research equivalence of the two devices operating in parallel. On this basis, a model correcting raw measurement results was developed. The best results were obtained for the model having the form of a second degree polynomial and taking into account air temperature. Corrected measurement results were used in the equivalence testing procedure. As a result, confirmation of equivalence was obtained for the vast majority of data sets generated from original measurements. This confirms the usefulness of the device as a tool for monitoring air quality.
